I wouldn't dew it

I wouldn't dew it

Is this something your should be drinking?

Some 7,200 gallons of concentrated Mountain Dew syrup created a "huge foaming event" and generated environmental concerns after it went down the drain, literally, at the Pepsi bottling plant in Livingston last month.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality was at the plant on several occasions after a tank ruptured and sent the syrup through a floor drain and into the plant's internal sewer system on March 10, said DEQ Senior Environmental Quality Analyst Carla Davidson.

The Mountain Dew syrup "can have a toxic effect on aquatic life if it ends up in rivers, lakes or streams." Again, should you be drinking this?
